Someone got me one of these hammocks for my betta, Leo, for Christmas, and he enjoyed it so much that I decided I had to get another one for my other fish, Phinneus. Sometimes they lay on it, and sometimes they just float over it protectively. Leo is in a larger community tank, and he has reserved the corner where his hammock is as his special spot. All the other fish know that bed belongs to him!
Super easy to set up in the tank--I like that it has a flexible wire so you can bend it into a comfortable shape for your fish. I haven't had any problems with the suction cup coming off, or with my betta's long fins getting snagged on the edges of the leaf.
My fish like and use it so I like it

I bought 2 for both of my crowntail bettas and both use it from time to time, more one than the other but its all on preference. Nevertheless, I thought it was a good buy and recommend it. Just have to fit the leaf onto the suction cup and stick it to the tank.

My betta is completely uninterested in this, at the moment, choosing instead to sit in her floating log or on the leaves of my java fern, but it's a good product, never-the-less. The leaf itself secures very well into the suction cup (it did take a few attempts to get in, but it worked out in the end), and the suction cup is very secure on the tank. It actually took a few attempts to get it off when I decided to move it, at one point. Hopefully, at some point, she'll actually use it.
Quality control issue

This is a great product on concept, but like some of the other reviewers, the bulb on the end of the leaf of the one I purchased was too large for the suction cup. I had to trim it with scissors to get it to fit. Other than that, it's a nice product. My betta started resting against it right away instead of hanging out by the filter overflow like he normally does. If the bulb didn't require trimming, I would have rated this product higher.
My betta loves his leaf

Got this for my betta to have a resting place. Not only does he love it but very protive of it. He has 2 mystery snails as tank mates and he loves his tank mates but nope they are not allowed to clean or even get close to his leaf lol. I recommend this to all betta owners.

Our beautiful Betta, Delta, LOVES HIS HAMMOCK!!! After 5 or 6 days Delta

I've had one before and they are awesome. My current beta hasn't quite figured out he can sit on it and ends up resting on the pump in his tank instead.
Cute & Betta Uses It

I have to be honest, even after reading reviews, I had reservations about my betta actually using this leaf. When I first put it in his bowl, the suction cup didn't stick. But after sticking it on one more time, it's stayed in place for a week or two. He didn't use it right away & seemed startled by it the first day or two, but he gradually warmed up to it & for the past few days, I've seen him resting on it. So cute! Am buying another for his second tank.
great product, purple suction cup?

My betta loves the leaf and it works wonderfully but soon after I placed it in the tank the suction part started turning purple. It doesn't seem to affect the product but it's still weird.
Our Betta Loves his hammock!

Highly recommend. It took him over a week to get used to it, but once he did - he rests on it all the time. (when he's not resting in his "man cave" hollow log, (also sold my Chewy).
